Grow In Stature

We don't want to keep growing physically after we are about 20 years old, but we can keep on growing in the way we take care of our physical health. Our bodies are given to us to steward. We are whole beings and our physical health affects every other part of our lives, mentally, emotionally, relationally and spiritually. We face temptations better, we love people better, we think better, and we are better able to manage our emotions when we are well taken care of physically. You are a steward of your own body. How is that stewardship going? Let's be careful to realize it is every bit as spiritual to get proper rest and eat healthily as it is to pray prayers or attend church. Separation of sacred and secular has created a warped view of life. God created all of life and set it all apart as sacred. What can you do this week to honour God with your physical health?
